Watcher's Winners

It was nice to see two longtime blogbuddies win in this week's Watcher's Council celebration of some of the best writing and analysis in the blogosphere.

Dale at Okie on the Lam tallied the most votes with his 2001 -- Our Own Odyssey Began On 9/11, a nicely turned remembrance.

Bookworm was just 1/3 point behind with 50 Million Intellectuals Can't Be Wrong, proving that yes, in fact they can.

Also with Book in second were three or maybe four other strong posts (Watcher either has the listings out of order or the tallies wrong) followed by my post, Give Peace a Chance. I thought I was going to be a competitor, but in this ring the fighting's pretty tough.

Over on the non-Council side, the folks agreed with me an voted my nominee first: When the Left Cares, and When It Doesn't from American Thinker. It's a scathing analysis of Brian DePalma, Hollywood and the Left, exactly what DePalma deserved for his horrible Redacted film.

That was followed by Iran Plan for Iraq from Counterterrorism Blog and in third an old and new blogbuddy: Gay Patriot's The Self-Righteous Religious Zeal of the Outers, and Logosphilia's Apples and Oranges.

I really enjoy Logosphilia's writing. He wanders off into obscure places -- this piece is on an economic survey I hadn't read about -- and does good analysis with excellent turns of phrase.

Thanks as always, Watcher, for cooking up this feast.
